I know I’m not as skinny as most people you see on television but damn it, I’m not fat.
I’m just sick of people thinking anything that’s short of Kim Chiu is automatically fat.
If you’ll remember my tweets the other week, I told people to stop calling me chubby. Nothing against chubbiness but really, it’s upsetting what some people think “normal” is. Hindi lang straight line, chubby na kaagad?
For someone who does not regularly go to the gym (until 3 weeks ago), I think I have the best body anyone with my lazy lifestyle could ask for. Except for Marian Rivera’s body. That girl does not work out at all but damn she is FIIIINE.
My trainer at Fitness First told me to take a picture of myself in a bikini to keep track of my before and after progress. Here’s my untouched “before” picture. Yes, I could use a little toning but if you think this is fat – you need to start eating more.
I’m blogging about this because it’s unbelievable how some anonymous losers can be so cruel and I’m not going to pretend I’m Wonder Woman with insult-deflecting bracelets. I usually turn the other cheek but lately I’ve found myself looking in the mirror and thinking “I’m so fat” and this is really something I don’t want to be going through.
Lots of girls have Body Dysmorphic Disorder wherein the person keeps looking for and pointing out their physical defects and it’s not something to poke fun at. I for one don’t want to develop this disorder but I have to be honest, being called fat does NOT motivate me to go to the gym. It makes me want to eat Cheetos Jalapeño on the couch while wallowing in my fat depression.
So I’m calling out for everyone to rethink what is fat. Am I offending you with my cellulite? Not so much? THEN LET IT GO. I’ve been eating healthier, being more active and it’s not to “get skinny” it’s to get fit and if people are going to be mean and point out “chubby ka pa rin pohwz” I will say…
I think I was built for the 50s when women actually embraced their curves
When I ranted about being called fat on Twitter, some guy tweeted me saying the truth always hurts the most with a winking smiley. But the truth is, as John Mayer aptly put it, I am only hurting because I look so good. Here is a winking smiley right back at ya ;) Winner ang confidence level!
